This Park With Azure Water Is Actually In Canada & You Can Road-Trip There From Montreal

A trip to Toronto usually means tons of concrete buildings as your view, but if you go just a little way from the downtown sector, you'll find the Scarborough Bluffs, which make it feel like you left Canada and ended up in the Caribbean.

The Scarborough Bluffs stretch along 15 kilometres of Lake Ontario and you can admire the azure-coloured waters from so many different spots.

You can find 11 parks near the Scarborough Bluffs, so there are tons of spots to explore and immerse yourself in nature right outside the city.

If you're hoping to spend your day in the sand, you can make your way to Bluffer's Beach.

Bluffer's Beach was specifically designed to give people access to the Scarborough Bluffs. The beach has picnic areas, lookouts, a boat launch and a park next to it with different trails to walk along.

The only other park that has a trail leading to the waterfront is East Point Park. To get to it, Toronto's official website says to "start at the end of Beechgrove and Copperfield Road."

And if ever you or any of your friends have a boat, you can always explore while on the water!

Bluffer's Park and Beach

Address: 1 Brimley Road S., Scarborough, ON

Distance From Montreal: Approximately a six-hour drive

Why You Need To Go: To admire 15 kilometres of beauty.
